Come to El Paso, Texas for arthritis treatment

As you age, or if you gain too much weight, your joints can suffer from pain related to arthritis. Arthritis is a chronic condition that causes joint pain by wearing down the cartilage in your joints. Without cartilage, your bones in your joints have no cushion to prevent them from rubbing against one another.

Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the two most common forms of the disease that people suffer from, though there are more than 100 types of arthritis in total. The disease can affect anyone at any time for a number of reasons, so even if you’re not a senior or are overweight, please seek medical attention if you notice any of the following:

  • Severe pain in the joints
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Redness around the joints
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite

How physical therapy helps people with arthritis

Many treatments for arthritis make use of medications and corticosteroids that come with many undesirable side-effects. That’s why many people with arthritis choose physical therapy. Physical therapists can treat your arthritis with techniques that do not cause all of the side-effects you get from other treatments.
